Description

Beautiful combination of emerald-green Fluorite, with a layer of dark white quartz, and white leafs of calcite.

The Fluorite is translucent. It is a little hard to catch its real green color in the pictures, the 4 first pictures are taken with extra light, and are closest to how it looks (while it seems a bit aqua-green in the other pictures).

There are damages on the edges of the specimen, and small cuts into the Calcite crystals. I find this piece very interesting because the quartz has totally covered one of the Fluorite crystals, which makes it a very artistic piece.

Please watch the video for the best view.
